When his apartment building is torn down, a retired lifelong New Yorker goes on a cross country odyssey with his beloved cat Tonto.
The poetry that Harry shouts at the car that nearly runs him over is from Shelly, "Epipsychidion";
One hope within two wills, one will beneath Two overshadowing minds, one life, one death, One Heaven, one Hell, one immortality, And one annihilation. ... ...
When did you last have a woman, Jacob?
Jacob Rivetowski: What?
Harry: When did you last sleep with a woman?
Jacob Rivetowski: Saturday night.
Jacob Rivetowski: March.
Jacob Rivetowski: 1951. Yeah, it was about ten o'clock at night.
Overhead boom mike is visible in two scenes. First, when Harry is sitting on the couch with Eddie at Eddie's apartment. Second, when Harry is playing chess by the beach.
Tonto is billed "and TONTO"
In the original theatrical version, Norman (Josh Mostel) says to Shirley (Ellen Burstyn), "I like you too, Aunt Shirley, but you're a c**t." When the ratings board gave the film an R rating because of this line, Mazursky changed the line to "But you're a bitch." All subsequent prints after the initial theatrical release contain this line, and the original has since disappeared.
